Benefits of gargling with lukewarm water

MDS, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), BDS
Dentist, Ahmedabad
Benefits of gargling with lukewarm water
To lessen the degree of pain or soreness in the mouth during the orthodontic treatment, you can gargle with 8 ounces of lukewarm water with one teaspoonful of salt dissolved in it. Swish it around your mouth and then spit it out. It will dull the pain and provide relief.

Hello Lybrate user. Although excessive saliva is not too common, there are a number of conditions that can cause it - some harmless, others more serious. It is possible that your saliva problems are just a result of the way you speak. Some people speak faster or slower than others, just as some people blink more often, breathe faster, or have a more rapid heartbeat. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment.

You may experience sensitivity for a while but that can be reduced using sensitivity toothpastes. If you do not do it too much, blaching is not a permanent problem. It should cost you around 10, 000 rs for all teeth.

I have a ulcer problem. yesterday I had headache and fever. What medicine do I have to take?
Usually ulcer heals by itself only within 1 week. You can take 'Becosule capsule' once in a day for 1 week for faster recovery. Temporarily you can apply mucopain gel over ulcer for relief..

I am 20 year old boy. I have problem with my joint point in my mouth. Whenever I try to open my mouth it sounds a clicking. So what can I do for this problem?

BDS
Dentist, Kolar
Minor clicking sounds r common with many individuals. You need to visit an oral n maxillofacial surgeon to get your joint evaluated to know if your degree of clicking is a matter of concern. Meanwhile avoid opening your mouth too much n also control your mouth opening while yawning n support your lower jaws with your palms. Take care.

Central incisor of my upper jaw bent forward. Is there any solution for normal alignment of my teeth?

Dentist, Jammu
Dear, There are many solutions for it - some short term - others long term. It all depends upon your clinical condition and the severity of your central incisor inclination. It will be wiser to give you options on undertaking a clinical examination. So go to the best Dental Surgeon in your area who is known to deliver a good quality dental care. For some of the pics you can even go Ahal Dental Clinic page on the facebook. There are many cases there that may interest you and you can ask your Dental Surgeon to provide with you the same if feasible.

You should consider getting a professional cleaning done by the dentist. This is just a gum disease and does NOT need any blood test or investigation. Clean your teeth. And maintain good hygiene habits at home.
